Okay. That should be finished. It was somewhat tricky because the XWork 
runtime configuration returns a valid ActionConfig for any URL that ends 
in a / if you have a index action at the root. This is the default 
handling that I'm not very fond of. For now, I turned this handling off 
because of the issues I mentioned above. So, SmartURLs now only handles 
URLs directly with no default/search behavior. So, all of Jeromy's 
issues are resolved.
